Photography (and by consequence the video) offer the possibility to go back in time and have access to images that make us to know other cultures and other ways of life than for its anecdotal value is they drive away from our customs.
It is always nice to know the work of American photographers of the past (for those who for some reason feel attracted by North American, the same culture that they live to fascinated with the idea of the old continent), with the idea of traveling to a series of experiences that even repeating itself today, We call more attention because it is those stylish years 40 and 50.
So today we are going to visit two series of Francis Miller, who worked for LIFE and whose work you can see full on the website of the American magazine. One leads to a report on the first all-female band of scouts and the other focuses on the documentation of a prom that lasted no less than 32 hours.
Two very innocent series
For me, that I have always been attracted by the fashion of those years, it is very interesting how on the prom photographs perfectly looks the less corseted aesthetic of the 1950s, with the music of the first rock and roll as a soundtrack, which would then giving way to the 60’s hippies.
We thank also the elegance that emerges from the evening dresses, from the also swimwear, even the innocence When it comes to fun at the amusement park on the images that make us reach these celebrations today. Photography allows us to travel to the past and series like this, without more pretensions than the document a certain event, paradoxically give fresh air to our Viewer’s gaze.
Also makes it the series on the scouts. It has not seemed to change much the aesthetics of these groups, as well as the rituals that take place in tours. However continue to see innocence and ultimately us ends up turning into something exotic for the years and cultural kms away that separates us from those images.
There is much information on the net about Francis Miller, but it seemed to me interesting to visit his work, above all for what I always tell of the importance of knowing other photographers whether current or past. These photographs may have more value as a document that by photographic innovation, but surely some detail serves as a remote base of inspiration.
